Summary

This study provides the prospective teacher with information concerning the expectations of hiring officials and the practices and policies commonly used in the teacher employment process. A mail survey was sent to officials in 208 districts in Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, and Nebraska. The survey instrument consisted of a checklist and a section made up of open ended questions. Of the 208 questionnaires sent out, 168, or 81 percent, were returned. The survey determined a) a consensus of opinion of hiring officials regarding teacher initiated employment practices, b) basic teacher employment practices, c) suggestions to teacher applicants for improving their chances for success when seeking positions. For the most part, only small differences in item responses by state occurred. Responses to open ended questions were designed for the respondent to express his personal view. These questions concerned pet peeves or gripes, the two most pertinent questions to be asked in an interview, suggestions to college placement officers regarding improvement, suggestions to teacher applicants to improve their chances of getting a job, and any additional pertinent comments. Appendixes are included. (MJM)
